in the dead of night.

Woke up in the middle of night
And I saw myself crying
No, it’s not a matter of any heartbreak
Neither did I feel like dying

A cluster of bad dreams hit me
last night like thunders
When the veins of heart felt too heavy
the thought took me to the unforgettable blunders

Never ask me to describe that nightmare
Coz honestly I don’t remember even a bit
Doesn’t sounds like broken strings together knit?
All I could relook is at that day we were in a room with blue curtains
The feeling of fear down my spine still pertains

Thoughts told me not to think anymore
It often takes time to return from shore
And another dream would be a new beginning
This time I won’t wait to fall asleep with my chime clinging!
